So... for my new "bachelorette" apartment...

I've been looking at lots of things to buy for my new apartment. After a nasty turn of events, I'm starting all over again from scratch. That should be fun, right? Well, it is and it isn't. My mailbox has been full of catalogs of everything from cookware to rugs to bedding to shower curtains. I'm a bit overwhelmed. And not liking that a lot of these paper catalogs are now going to the recycle bin because I'm just not finding what I want in them.

Enter CSN Stores. An amazing group of online stores with so much variety, my head spins just looking at all the products! But the best part, besides the almost overwhelming variety, is that I can do my shopping online and save trees by not ordering catalogs.

So imagine my joy when I found out I will be doing a product review for one of the CSN stores called cookware.com - one of 200 stores under the CSN umbrella. Yes, I said TWO HUNDRED ONLINE STORES. Ahem... sorry to shout. I'm just so excited I can hardly stand myself!

You see I am going to be evaluating and writing a review for this lovely little jewel --

Hamilton Beach Stay or Go
6 Quart Slow Cooker in Stainless Steel

This 6 quart slow cooker features a convenient lid rest that keeps the lid out of way for stirring and serving. Also includes clip-tight lid locks to prevent messy spills and large full-grip handles that make carrying and distributing easier. And did you notice the handy-dandy spoon rest on the lid with its own spoon?


(sorry, I'm shouting again...)

So look for a review here from me in the near future on this sleek beauty. I'm tickled pink to be adding this jewel to my new but bare kitchen. A great way to build up my collection of small appliances again!

Stay tuned....
